  1. I plan to kill two proverbial birds with one stone. I'll post my answers to this meme and the other "foursome" list on my blog later today.
    Too tired to do it now (it's 4:00 am and I didn't sleep)

  2. Thank you! This close to the water and you haven't been on a boat? We need to get you out more.

    1. sorry; been on the ferry from cape may to lewes and the ferry from hatteras to ocracoke. been seasick both times.

      I have done river cruises (the dandy from alexandria) and have not gotten sick.

      also, I cannot swim and have a fear of the water (except for my morning shower).

    1. good morning; you are up early! yes, the penguin presented me with a list I couldn't refuse!

  4. As a Canadian, dare I say that I could tell this list was American-based as soon as I saw the first question?

    1. yeah. disturbing, isn't it? wish we had your country's gun control laws.

  5. I've posted the answers on my blog.

  6. you need some more X in your life.

    1. eh, I have had enough excitement for one lifetime. no regrets.

  7. Very interesting!!! A great way to put it out there for all to read in one post! When I get a chance I may do this on my blog.
